What's the best junior all-around twin-tip ski?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm 14 and just outgrew my last pair of skis-some rossignal scratch trixies. They started getting to flimsy for my skiing style so i'm looking for a slightly sturdier ski. I'm looking for all around twin-tips (probably with wood core for stability since I'm a very aggressive skier). Price is no problem as I can work for my dad as much as I want to earn the money. Also, I'm only 5' so i can't get adult skis quite yet.

What I've found is this:

-K2 Bad Seed

-Volkl Gotama jr.

-Armada Coda

SB1 - I've got a kid in about the same boat, and decided against getting him the Gotamas. 

 

Now, Volkl may have re-done the Goats for 2012, but I skied on the adult-version for the last two years and just couldn't take it anymore.  They were OK in deep pow and crud, but hard snow was a nightmare.  Like skiing on hockey skates. 

 

I don't have any experience with the K2's or Armadas - so won't comment on those.  We ended up getting him a pair of Atomic Bent Chetler Minis, intended to be his powder/park skis.  He also has a set of Blizzards for racing and groomers. 

 

Good luck - let me know what you find.

Thanks, the atomics look like pretty good skis. I've decided against the Gotamas and the armadas.

Where do you ski?  And never mind your height -- what do you weigh?

The Rossignol Scratch BC Jr is a real nice ski, although I'm not sure if they still make it.  At 90mm under foot, it's a strong ski for maritime climates.

 

I'm a fan of Line's junior twin tips too.  Very well built.
